Yes, go for the hint instructions.  But, be careful!  The latest version
of grub now has some changes so be sure to read and understand the
install files also.  /boot/grub/ seems to have caught on as a standard
place to put the various grub files.  There was a new install script
with this latest grub, but I had to muck around in it quite a bit.
